Calibration of capacitors at frequencies of 10 kHz to 1 MHz


The market of capacitors represents more than 3.1E9 ECU in Europe. For electronic equipment the characteristics of these capacitors must be determined at frequencies up to 1 MHz. The accuracy requirements are beyond the capabilities of the best metrology laboratories.
The project therefore was given the objective of developing a method of calibration for capacitors of 1 pF to 1 uF at 100 kHz and 1 MHz. When the calibration method is optimized, high quality capacitors will be calibrated to serve as transfer standards for other metrology laboratories.
